In what can be termed a breakthrough achievement, Maruti Suzuki India has surpassed the 2.5 crore (25 million) units production mark since commencing its operations in 1983. 

Interestingly, the automaker becomes the only Indian manufacturer to achieve the milestone. With its first manufacturing facility in Gurugram, Haryana, Maruti Suzuki has commissioned its second state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Manesar, Haryana. Both facilities together are capable of producing 1.5 million units per annum.

Moreover, aligned with the Government of India’s vision of Make-in-India, the company has, over the years, strengthened its exports. While Maruti Suzuki offers a choice of 16 passenger vehicle models for its customers in India, it also exports to around 100 markets worldwide.

Hisashi Takeuchi, Managing Director & CEO, Maruti Suzuki, noted that 2022 marks 40 years of Suzuki’s partnership with the people of India. Crossing 25 million cumulative production milestones this year is a testimony of Suzuki’s continued commitment and partnership with the people of India.

“I take this opportunity to express my gratitude to all employees of Maruti Suzuki, our vendor partners and dealer partners. It is with their commitment and support that Maruti Suzuki has been able to fulfil the dreams of millions of people to own a car,” he added.

Anticipating growing demand for passenger vehicles, we have also started work on setting up a new manufacturing facility in Kharkhoda, Haryana, Takeuchi confirmed.

In the first phase, with an investment of INR 1,100 crore, the company plans to start with a manufacturing capacity of 2.5 lakh vehicles annually by 2025 at its new plant in Kharkhoda.

The company also noted that the site will have space for capacity expansion to include more manufacturing plants. Under the deal, 800-acre of the land has been allocated to Maruti Suzuki, while the rest 100 acres have been allocated to the two-wheeler maker.
